Come and Go with Boy George.
This just in: Hemorrhoids, dog poop and even the band Nickelback each have higher approval ratings than Congress does at the moment.
We get it: This whole government shutdown mess has got everybody all riled up. Hell, upwards of 45,000 people have drunk-dialed their representatives during the shutdown to vent some of that frustration.
But, while it doesn't look like that situation is going to get cleared up any time soon, we encourage you to at least take a look at the good around you. Y'know, accentuate the positives and all that. If that doesn't cheer you up, maybe distract yourself a bit. Have some fun. Unlike love for the government, there's plenty of that to go around.
